Test of India’s largest hydropower plant

Solvina team India has achieved another milestone in the Posoco testing program. Nathpa Jhakri Hydroelectric Station (NJHPS) of 1500 MW capacity, which is India’s largest hydropower plant, has now been tested. Rampur Hydro Power Station (HPS) of 412 MW, that is in cascade with Nathpa Jhakri, has also been tested.

“The primary frequency response test was very interesting at both the hydro plants as we can observe the effect of water dynamics in Rampur HPS introduced due to sudden load changes at NJHPS.”, says Saurabh Tripathi, Solvina Engineer.
